Puppy Kindergarten class begins Jan. 9
By Carleta Weyrich
Do you expect a little furry addition to your family in the near future? If you are planning to get a puppy for Christmas, please consider this: shelters get flooded with dogs between September and November every year due to the Christmas puppies from the previous year that have grown up and are not trained, not socialized, and are not cute anymore.
You can help prevent this trend by enrolling your puppy in Puppy Kindergarten in January. Open to dogs ages six months and younger, Puppy Kindergarten is meant to encourage healthy socialization, teach some fun “tricks” and basic commands, (such as “Sit,” “Down,” and “Leave It”). If you are interested in this course, please come to the new Humane Society Animal Shelter on Thursday, Jan. 9 at 6:30 p.m. for orientation (please do not bring your puppy to orientation). The course lasts seven weeks, and will meet every Thursday for a half hour from 6:30 p.m. until 7 p.m.
All puppies must be vaccinated to participate (if under four months, rabies vaccine is not necessary). Classes will be taught by local resident Margie Morrison, who has over 25 years of dog training experience. Class size is limited to 15 participants.
For more information, or to register for the next class starting Jan. 9, please call Margie at 419-238-5228 (cell) or 419-238-1672 (home), or just show up at orientation.
